Now that the weather has started to cool off, it’s more important that your plumbing care starts to heat up. We want you to put the appropriate effort into caring for this system. It’s important because your plumbing is such a complex web of plumbing and other pipes. We’re prepared to help you if you’re looking for responsible plumbing in Pottstown, PA. We’re a team of professionals who care about the quality of care you’re going to receive. 

The first step to getting proper service is knowing what you’re looking for. It’s important to understand that you might have some troubles that fly under the radar a little. We’re going to highlight these issues today. 

Issues You Might Notice with Your Plumbing

Here are some signs that you should address your plumbing issues with the help of a professional.

Frozen Pipes

The number one thing that you should look out for this winter is frozen pipes. We live in a cold-weather climate in Pottstown where the nighttime temperatures will definitely freeze. It’s important to make sure that you’re not succumbing to problems with frozen pipes. If you’d like to avoid troubles like this, we suggest the following:

  • Insulating pipes that freeze often.
  • Letting water drip from pipes that have frozen in the past.
  • Keeping the temperature in your home at a constant. 
  • Opening up your cabinets to let warm air hit these pipes.

These are easy ways to avoid frozen pipes all winter long. 

Water Heater Issues

It’s important to note if you’re dealing with water heater issues. It’s not likely that you’re going to notice a water heater issue straight from the source. Instead, you’re more likely to notice the symptoms. When you notice things like the following, it’s worthwhile to check in with a professional to check on your water heater.

  • Low water pressure.
  • Rust in your water.
  • Discolored water or water that smells unpleasant.
  • A lack of hot water.
  • Troubles with the sound of your water heater (rumbling and knocking in particular).

These are all pretty clear signs that you’re having water heater issues and we can help.


Leaks are a top issue no matter what time of year it is. Leaks are such a top priority problem because they can snowball and cause major issues. If you’d like to solve problems with your leak, then it’s important for you to schedule an appointment with our professionals. We’re going to help you with everything you need. We’ll solve the leak and make sure that it doesn’t become a bigger issue.

A Bad Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposal issues are another one of those issues that aren’t exclusive to this time of year. We typically see an increase with this issue in particular because so many homeowners in the area are entertaining for the holidays. If you start to notice issues with your garbage disposal, then we suggest that you get in touch with a professional as soon as possible. It’s the only way to fix this issue fast.
